Upsall is a hamlet in the parish of South Kilvington in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately four miles north-east of Thirsk. Upsall is part of the Upsall and Roxby estates owned by the Turton family. The village has a population of around 60.

The name Upsall is thought to derive from the Viking Upsal-ir, meaning 'high dwellings'.

Upsall Castle lies near the middle of the village. The 19th-century building was destroyed by fire in 1918 and rebuilt in 1922. The original Upsall castle dated from the 14th century, and was rebuilt by the Scrope family. The Legend of Upsall Castle is associated with the original castle.

Upsall boasts some magnificent architecture. The old forge with the words Upsall Town and the date 1859 inscribed above its horseshoe arch lies in the centre of the village. Castle Farm is a Grade II listed structure badly in need of maintenance and repair. Most of the buildings in Upsall are built from sandstone extracted from the old quarry. The abandoned Methodist chapel is one of the few brick-built buildings in Upsall.

Upsall suffered from the North Yorkshire Floods in June 2005. Nine inches of rain fell on the village in about two hours on 19 June. The consequences of such exceptional rainfall were that crops were flattened, tarmac was stripped off the roads, private properties were flood-damaged, a bridge was destroyed and tons of earth were washed off the fields into a dip in the road.

Upsall is home to a rare breed of cows called Upsall Polled Shorthorns; the herd was established in 1909 and narrowly escaped the 2001 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease.

The National Cycle Network passes through Upsall village.
